In which there is a New Year's party taking place in the studio, including Laurence Porter, Jacqui Saddington, singer Helen Watson, Pit pony Vic Evans, Fireman Chris - our sexual correspondent, Shane Saunders, our criminal correspondent (live from his safehouse in darkest Essex), and Lesley Churchill, who came bearing gifts. In which we reviewed the year, had a row (mostly off mic), Jacqui swore and Lesley brought virtual champagne and salmon. The Purple Programme, presented by Nick Skeens, Cocker Freeman and Laurence Porter, is a topical radio show that takes a wry look at international, national and local affairs. It's broadcast live every Thursday between 11am and 1pm GMT (UT) to south-east Essex on Saint FM 94.7 (a community radio station) and across the world on www.saintfm.org.uk from studios in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex.
